Look Out Below (Level 50): In Outbreak, kill an Orda with a melee finisher — 2,500 XP.
Ordas are no joke — even early in a match, these towering figures can crush Operators like bugs with one well-placed stomp.
So of course we need to have a Knife, a Sledgehammer, or even a shovel to take one down.
Having your melee skill fully upgraded helps with this challenge, as the added damage boosts and self-heals will keep you alive longer. However, we also advise going against an Orda with more than just a melee weapon.
Instead, take a powerful weapon with you to an Orda fight and chip its health down to a sliver. Then take your Knife — or use the butt of your weapon — and chop away at its feet. Using Aether Shroud can also help you avoid being pounded into the dirt, since it allows you to fight the Orda while being completely invincible to damage for a brief period.
Out of Body Experience (Level 60): Use a Chopper Gunner or Cruise Missile Support with 5 or more enemies in close proximity — 8,500 XP (three Tiers).
Another “pro tip” that you will learn through this challenge: If you have a Chopper Gunner or Cruise Missile Support, zombies will stop attacking you completely.
This means that when you pull up one of these items while being bitten and swiped at, you essentially save yourself from dying.
If you’re worried about diving headfirst into a horde, then try using a Decoy Grenade to pool five or more enemies together before standing next to them and pulling out your Support tablet.
Gone Fishing (Level 70): In Outbreak, collect 25 items from fishing — 8,500 XP (three Tiers).
We personally love this minigame that Treyarch added into Outbreak last season, and you may love it, too, since it gives you the chance to get Support Items and even Wonder Weapons with few strings attached.
You can find a fishing spot in an Outbreak region by paying close attention to your mini-map and looking for a fishing pole icon that often appears above bodies of water. Once there, sit back and chill to some relaxing tunes as you cast a line. Once your controller starts rumbling or the audio cue plays, press the button onscreen to pull in your catch.
Do this 25 times, and you’ll complete this challenge, but we don’t blame you if you continue to fish plenty of times after this. Just be wary of some old boots if you catch one on your line, as we’re not sure who keeps throwing them into the water…
Blinded by the Light (Level 80): Kill 25 enemies stunned by Healing Aura — 8,500 XP (three Tiers).
No need to be some all-hot half-shot to complete this challenge; you can even do it with the Healing Aura Skill upgraded to Tier II (which makes the Aura knock down normal enemies and stun Specials and Elites), although we recommend putting it at Tier V to allow for persistent beams that can frequently stun enemies.
Once the Healing Aura is charged, let some Special and Elite enemies approach you and get within its range. Once stunned, fire everything you have into them; if your weapons are too weak, soften them up before activating the Aura and finishing the job.
